It’s that time of year, again: The time when we tell New York and its insufferable winter to take a hike. And when we realize the city doesn’t have legs, we say “FINE” and buy plane tickets somewhere warmer. We’ve thawed our limbs in Austin, Texas, (at this seriously adorable little Airbnb), and now we’re heading to L.A., where we’ll mentally and physically prepare ourselves for a weekend in Vegas. So, enjoy this episode of “10 Things”—because if New York weather doesn’t start behaving, we might quit our jobs and just disappear into the desert. —claire


Erica's things:

  • Scrolling my way through the solar system (and some planetary witticisms).

  • Cracking up over the “On Food” column over on The Paris Review’s website—it’s written by Sadie Stein, who I’ve had a writer-crush on since she was at Jezebel way back when.

  • Wanting to plan a trip to Newfoundland, just to stay at the dreamy-looking Fogo Island Inn.

  • Fantasizing about packing up my sweaters—and bookmarking this Who What Wear guide to storing my knits when the time comes (with tips from Of a Kind alum Lynne Hiriak of Cardigan!).

  • Eating up the so-tasty, crazy-well-priced prix-fixe menu at Lenoir in Austin—and the place is real pretty, even.


Claire's things:

  • Using this $6 plastic thingy to radically improve my skincare routine.

  • Realizing I’ve been making popcorn wrong this whole time, thanks to this Food52 tutorial—which also makes me desperately want white Le Creuset (a color that, naturally, has been discontinued).

  • Loving Miranda July more and more every time she shows up in my internet—this time, being interviewed by the ever-charming Ann Friedman (whose newsletter is way worth it, by the way).

  • Scooping up this pack of font-junkie postcards by super-cool type foundry and design shop House Industries (...which turns out to be based in my home-state of Delaware!).

  • Wishing my knitting skills were good enough to whip up sweaters for these penguins in need.
